I've been seeing CCI primers in E. Tennessee going for $36 - $45/1000. I was paying $34 in Michigan before I moved down here. Course that was a year ago. We have just recently been seeing CCI primers at all! Remington and Winchester have been around for a while, not in any large quantities though. The only problem I have now is brass and Bullseye powder.

Got some CCI in Quad City area for 32.50 and Winchester at another place for 29.00 Both prices less tax. This was yesterday. Getting closer to last years prices.

The people selling at 29.00 are goingto be my go to first place for guns and shooting supplies. They are honest and have held their normal markup on ammo all through this shortage.

Gun store at the range this morning has not had any CCI's for better than six months. No .22LR for over a year, .44 of any ilk is non existent. .380, 9mm, .40, .45 is around, but prices are sky high. I am beginning to see .223, and 30-30 coming back at somewhat reasonable prices. Got some at the gun show a couple of weeks ago for around $7.00/20. I usually reload .223, but brass/bullets are hard to find here.
